-No, this doesn’t mean you can’t learn other things from anime such as vocabulary terms and grammar patterns
-Yes, You can spend years studying Japanese formally at university or any other kind of institution, and still learn things from watching anime, even if it’s just a new vocabulary or common phrase here and there.
-Yes, there are certain types or genres of anime much more suited to learning from (romantic comedies set in a school campus are much more friendly than science fiction mecha series with an overload of technical jargon)
-Yes anime is cool as hell

I may be wrong, but wouldn't it be 「ルフィは男がいて海賊王になる!」instead of 「ルフィは海賊王になる男だ!」?

Playing MMORPG's is how i learned english, I even got the opportunity to practice hearing and speaking because every endgame guild uses discord. The problem is that you copy other people when you are learning a new language from them, even their mistakes.

Guys, I think it isn't a big problem to learn Japanese from anime because, hey, you were talking your language until you started learn grammar. For example, I'm Russian and I was talking Russian (it is one of hardest languages) until I went to school without a really big count of mistakes and was able to explain somebody something. To prove that Russian is hard language I wanna show how one word will change: To hit - бить " bit' " I hit (present tense) - Я бью " b'yu " He hits - Он бьёт " b'yot " They hit - Они бьют " b'yut " I hit (past tense) - Я бил " b'il "

@Creative Director You should not regard leaning languages while the Critical Period in the same light as learning them after that Plus, I wonder how people who insist leared Japanese only from anime learned Japanese properly, because subtitles are usually free translation and it's far from original dilect meaning I graduated university in Japan and work at Japanese company now, so I know a lot of non-Japanese who speak Japanese very fluently, but haven't met those who insist to learn Japanese only from anime and understand Japanese well

from my experience of over 13 years of watching subbed anime, you don't learn how to speak it or put together grammatically correct sentences, but you start to understand quite a bit of it by ear. At this point I can watch anime with simple Japanese meant for kids without subtitles, and anime in general almost without subtitles(I'll get the general gist of what they're saying)
Clor0phylle Il y a 10 mois
I started watching English videos when I was 11 and I only knew the basics, such as "I like eating fries" lol. And now, I'm considered fluent (C2 Proficiency). So I think it's highly possible if you already have basic grammar and vocabulary. I guess it really depends on the individual. Anyway, I've been into anime since 6th grade and I pretty much can hold a good simple conversation. I just need to really work on grammar and conjugation (I've always had an issue with it, even in my mother tongue)...

I just want to say, that you did a fantastic job breaking it down to a simple level. I haven't studied Japanese since I was in middle school, oh 15+ years ago now. My friends and I made a club, and found a real Japanese teacher to help us out. He was a really strange American who had lived in Japan most of his life, but a great guy. Back then I knew hiragana and could say basic shit, read a little bit etc. But since then I have forgotten most of it, besides saying how do you do, nice to meet you. I found myself remembering things long forgotten after watching this. So thank you! It's by far the most beautiful spoken and written language, in my opinion. Subbed!

This video was masterfully done. Last month, I finished my first japanese class ever and i find it absolutely incredible how much more japanese words I can pick up from anime now than I did before ever taking a course. I agree with the man in the video that the best way to learn japanese from anime is to combine it with some kind of japanese course.

Then I should be lucky I know how to speak Japanese by watching anime. Although I only understand what they are talking and know how to speak , but not reading I can only read romaji.

how do you learn to speak your first language before you enter School? the answer is listening.
Austy Il y a 7 mois
When you are extremely young the human brain learns a lot that includes your surroundings, especially when your parents talk to you. Just like how accents develop depending on the people surrounding you. That’s why it’s said learning a 2nd language growing up is a lot easier than being 13 or above learning a new language for example.

Eloh Araphel I mean usually you speak the language before you start school but... i get what you’re saying
Keeper Holderson
I think the most important part in learning any language is hearing it. Why learning a language if your brain is not trained to process auditory input fast enough hence you cannot understand the speech? And media like anime do a grate job in merging a lot of types of information in one package. Which is good because when you watch anime, not knowing Japanese very well, your brain makes sense of Japanese in a context, so it ultimately engages more of your brain in the process of learning. So I think Anime is ultimately the best platform to start learning Japanese or to at least learn to distinguish words and phrases in the mambo jambo of sounds.
KaMo Il y a an
Yes, I agree. Also, it would be better if you turn off English subtitles and just listen to pure Japanese and then, eventually, start to understand something and make sense of it.
It is possible to learn japanese in a month
